    Boooooooooooring!   I agree with laura. Dodger needs a path to travel.    If I were you Laura, I would start the Dodge on tracking, I think he’d love it.   Who cares about all that regular obedience stuff  😉  He’s a wonderful loving boy who has a wonderful mum.  Work on tracking and if he’s naughty, menh, so what. Just have fun with him and he’ll love it.  He’s a big rambunctious fun loving lad, so find a pastime that rewards his best attributes.  8)

    In the NAVHDA hunting aptitude tests, dogs that are basically “out of control” are highly praised..so there’s a place for everyone even the gruesome twosome …remote control dogs are dull dull dull  ;D

    I know transport is a big problem for you Laura,…are dogs allowed on trains, buses?  How about trying to work out a carpool with a tracking club? In my experience clubs of all sorts will go out of their way to attract and keep new young members.

    Yep pooches are allowed on buses etc – IF they behave, if a dog Dodgers size was out of control theyd probably kick Laura off without a seconds thought  🙂

    yup we’ve been travelling the buses since he was 8 weeks old – so buses are no problem. Haven’t thought about trains before 🙂

    how about a heelwork to music routine…you can do that by yourself and if it gets fluent enough enter in some fun comps

    isn’t it just ::) lol thanks anyway :-*

    I know its not exactly the most active/challenging thing to do but what about a dog walking group, you might find it good to be with like-minded people and Dodger could charge about with the other dogs to his hearts content, just a thought!

    there is a group of dogs that i let him off with but i was looking more to the side of a job type thing. I know i may be able to go to flyball with him just trying to persuade the parent to take me 😀

    u can get dvds and books about training and also HWTM. teach yourself and your doggy a few things! its a gr8 way to build up your bond! could progress onto more advanced things such as retrieve and present or send aways 🙂

    lol i think so emma although at the NESSR show we had a go at it and we got invited straight into the intermediate class cuase he was so good ;D ;D

    we’ve found are ‘what to do’!!!!  ;D ;D ;D All these k9 police tv shows got me really annoyed that i couldn’t so anything so i thought i’d train dodger into the one and only street cash detection dog! he can now scent and find 20 pound notes in around 2-4 mins depending on how hard i hide it. We are starting slowly but he’s caught on to it so fast it’s unreal 😀 😀
